Randall, you might be right about the molding being vinyl covered -- my
statement about chrome isn't authoritative. Somehow I have a memory of
holding one of those molding strips in my hand once upon a time, somewhere,
someone's.... In my mind's eye I see a chrome-plated metal strip with
threaded studs on the backside, arched to fit the door sill where the side
curtain would have been fixed. But I can't think where I got that memory,
or even if it was here in the US or in the UK.
